SDOU administers several grants for both graduate and undergraduate students in the biological sciences. Click the titles of those funded for the current year for more information and to apply.
Founded in 1949, SDOU has been South Dakota's primary statewide organization to promote the study of wild birds, to encourage ornithological research, and to preserve the state's avian records. Birders, environmentally-concerned individuals, ornithologists and other natural scientists all contribute to these efforts.
